"This book provides a balanced and in-depth coverage and fresh perspectives of the state-of-the-art mobile computing technologies, from radio interface, to software platform to emerging applications." -Dr.Ya-Qin Zhang, Microsoft Corporation "Smart Phone and Next Generation Mobile Computing is essential reading for any professionals and students involved in this dynamic field. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of fundamentals and covers the most recent technology advances. It describes not only how, but also why, through many insightful examples." -Dr. Wei Zhao, National Science Foundation "This book presents a detailed and comprehensive exposition of all important technologies related to mobile communication and pervasive application development using smart phones. This is a timely publication and it would be a very useful resource for educators, researchers, and developers in this field." -Professor Anand Tripathi, University of Minnesota "This book is something else. It is not often that you see a book that is as up to date as this one while also covering a broad swath of wireless technology...this book is very much up to date and a good reference to all the most current wireless technologies." - Electronic Design, Louis E. Frenzel, July 2006
